Linear Algebra Toolkit
GRADE LEVEL: 9-12, Advanced

The Linear Algebra Toolkit from Old Dominion University provides practice in basic linear algebra procedures.
The content of this bare-bones site makes up for the lack of pizzazz.
Visitors can access the modules from the main page. Each internal page has a graphic link back to the main page.
Teachers and students can use this site to reinforce concepts taught in the classroom. The site features an interactive row operation calculator that enables students to perform a sequence of elementary row operations. The modules cover such topics as transforming a matrix to row echelon form; solving a linear system of equations; calculating the determinant, using row operations; and linear independence and dependence. Students choose the size of the matrix and enter the elements, and the calculator performs the operations.
